We close our season with an energetic and soul-warming revival of some of the most incredible 20th century jazz standards by George Gershwin, the great Broadway composer of hits across film, romance and musical comedy that defined the 1930s and are indelibly ingrained in the American identity. From the composer of jazz great Rhapsody in Blue, come hear timeless classics such as “They can’t take that away from me,” “Strike up the band,” “Embraceable you,” and “Let’s call the whole thing off.” Jazz instrumentalists will accompany the Chorale and transport you to the magic of one of America’s most defining musical eras.
